What make are these?
« on: July 15, 2009, 12:44:22 pm »
I'm hopefully picking up hens from QWOLF tomorrow night.  ;D

He thought that these were Aconas... but my googling suggests that Aconas are black and white?  :chook:

Can anyone put me right, or suggest what make these chickens are?  ???

I know brown ones, and black ones, and that's it!  ::)

how old do they claim them to be. if young i would suggest a closer look at there heads and they have nice butch legs. in which case your not going to get overwhelmed with eggs.

And what 'make' is Jack.  Called that as he wears a dog collar - Parson Jack Russell....................  I automatically assumed he was a Khaki Campbell when I was given him but a friend said what breed is he so now I'm not so sure.  Any ideas.  This is him with one of my KC girls

I love this game! Never knew Swedish Blues are so big, lol. Nice one, Annie! I've got a black one with a dog collar, but she's more likely a Call duck or Call cross. My cat has a collar, too, but I rather call it "bib" on her :&>

He's a bit of a wussy drake though.   The girls come and eat off my hand but he just stands hovering at the back and squeaking like it's going out of fashion ;D
